For the paper, you are not going to make a list. Instead, you will write about how some specific points in each of the Party Platforms represents the spirit and purpose of each party. You may want to choose points that share a common purpose, such as discrimination or jobs or health care. You may want to find examples that go deeper and reveal the attitudes and beliefs that underlie the points. You might also want to compare and contrast the Party Platforms to the Presidential candidates and what each of the parties has to say about them.
